House Salad Dressing #1

BY NANCY HALA

Every household should have at least one signature salad dressing. (I have several, and I’ll be sharing them all.) From fancy dinner parties to everyday lunches, it’s a great thing indeed to have homemade dressing ready to go in the fridge. Two reasons: first, bottled store-bought dressing is filled with a lot of whatever that you don’t want to eat, and second: homemade tastes fresh and delicious, so when lunch or dinnertime rolls around you are more inclined to throw together a salad for yourself than to, for example, order a bunch of take out from, let’s say, the Chinese place around the corner, which, yes, has some amazing deep-fried spring rolls, I cannot deny it.

Make your own salad dressing. Keep it in a glass jar or bottle. Eat salad at least once a day.

 

Ingredients

½ cup raw cashews, soaked in water for at least one hour (overnight is best)

1 cup apple cider vinegar (so good for you!)

½ cup best quality olive oil

6 prunes (these add a mellow sweetness to this dressing)

1 heaping tablespoon Dijon mustard

juice of 1 lemon

2 tsp kosher salt

fresh ground black pepper to taste

Directions

Blend all the ingredients in a Vitamix.

Add a little warm water (1/4 cup) if needed, for consistency.
